Could you please change the short o picture to something other than an r controlled word, such as octopus?

Hello there, Jennifer.
We are in the process of reviewing our phonics resources for other world regions. We realise that phonics is not always the same for different English dialects and will amend these as soon as we can. You will receive a notification once this has been completed. Thanks very much for bringing this to our attention.
